Low EQ, we meet again.

>> Friday, March 4, 2011

And I thought I've been doing well.

Friends and I talk about this common phenomenon, err, sickness, that occurs every now and then when we have one particular thing in mind to buy at a store and end up getting more than what we intended to.

Last week, it was the case of my 'nesting' phase, wherein I was only supposed to buy my prescribed antibiotics. When I walked into the mall from the parking, I was lured into the linen section and before I knew it, I was hauling 400-thread count bedsheets, two new pillows and three Victorian-inspired curtains.

I was like, "Where did that come from?"

I wasn't regretting my decision. After all, the curtains make me smile every time I see them and the bedsheets and pillows, God bless them, have helped me sleep like a baby {as if I can sleep tighter than I already do.} So I forgave myself for the uber spontaneous purchase.

And then it happened again, on a smaller scale, however:

The Body Shop's White Musk line plus Vitamin E Toner and Moisturizer

I only wanted a second bottle of my White Musk chiffon mist and I ended up getting the entire line {Blame the pretty bag that came with it, HA!}. Oh and in true Becky Bloomwood fashion, I ended up signing up for the membership thing which earned me the Vitamin E freebies. Sweet, right?

As if that was not enough, The Body Shop Greenbelt was right across Powerbooks and you guessed right:

Paper Cuts by Pam Pastor
French Women for All Seasons by Mireille Guiliano
Mini Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella

Damn, bouts of sadness in the afternoon!

I wonder what my mother have to say. :D
What about you, do you succumb to low EQ, too?

If this is how having low EQ would end like, then I'm okay with it! Hihi. I had a blast last night, BFF! And see you again tom. Muah! =)

Apt that you bought Mini Shopaholic then! Okay Lang yan, Tee :) I bought jewelry last month and I still haven't told Vince about it!

I'm always battling about this as well. I say focusing on a certain goal (like purchasing a house, a car, or even a trip) and constantly reminding yourself of it will significantly increase self control. It's not in any way easy though... hehehe...and yes, I want to buy that Mini Shopaholic book as well. :D

Love the post Tara! :)

@Dang: Kawawa naman ang credit card ko! =P See you tomorrow! =) Mwah!

@Frances: Haha, nice! =) Was it on impulse, too? :) I bet it's gorgeous!

@Kristel: Aww, thanks dear! And ang hirap labanan ng mababang EQ ano? =)

@Nikki: I will, CLARA! =) Nice seeing you last night, Clara!

That was exactly what happened to me, and now I am a Bodyshop member too! Hahahahaha! Anyway, I've been wanting to read Mini Shopaholic since it came out... let me know if it's good!

This happens to me every time I enter national bookstore, office warehouse, or fully booked.

Just the other day, I was just supposed to buy one stinking folder. And I came out with two new books in hand too.

Sometimes stamps, new pens...you get the picture.

The mini shopaholic was hilarious! Pinilit ko pa si bf basahin and he too enjoyed it! :D

Oh no, I'm exactly like that! I have no impulse control :( Dapat isang lipgloss lang bibilhin ko, naging tatlo!

Why, thank you :) Comments make my day!
Cheers, Tara
